There a big difference between alone and lonely.  Alone can be lonely however it can be a nice quiet peaceful experience too. Lonely engenders a longing, a missing part, a wanting of something that you do not have.  It could be a friend, a lover, a companion. a relationship with something more than yourself.  Our consumer culture loves this for advertising wants to rush in to fill this need with pointed smiles and products promising a smell that attracts or a diet that thins to the desire of others.  Funny how, when you are in a lonely mood, that the pointed smiles hurt, driving you deeper into the lonely mood thus needing more of the right deodorant or right car or right food.  It seems that finding a way to share, not consume is a bigger, better, new and improved cure for loneliness. And it is less taxing on the pocket book.

Carrying on with carrying the concerns of the day.

I feel the word carry in my body; mostly in my shoulders.  It must be I'm carrying my life on my shoulders.  But if I don't who will? Burden or Blessing? For me this depends on my mood and the time of day. Now its time to carry on forward. Peace.

Man Lost in Paradise

What if we were all standing in the paradise of eternity and didn't know it? What if the thoughts and fears of ourselves and others blocked the view and the experience of what is? Of course our experience is our reality. But now much of it are we creating as a picture show in the mind and how much is in the here and now?

Charlie felt his whole life was like being suspended over flames.
 He could swing away, but always he returned to the hottest of the heat.
